Okay, so numerous threads have established that a lot of us like to listen to music when we write, even relate songs to situations and characters in our WIPs.

But I thought it would be cool to post which songs actually relate to certain situations in our novels, so in case someone's in need of a really awesome angsty song or whatever, they can come here and see which songs work for other people. :)

So here goes!

The opening montage/incidental music: 'Fly' - Sugar Ray

My MC's theme song: 'You Are What You Love' - Jenny Lewis

My male protagonist's favorite song: 'Come On Eileen' - Save Ferris

The way my male protagonist feels about my MC: 'Alright With Me' - Kris Allen

The 'a lot of memories just came rushing back' song: 'Don't Give Up' - Peter Gabriel

Song for the rocky relationship between my MC and her bff, who she's kind of in love with: 'Between the Lines' - Sara Bareilles

A bittersweet "falling for you" song: 'Insomniac (A Capella)' - Straight No Chaser

The part of the novel when everything is awesome (before the climax, where a whole lot of shit heads in the general direction of the fan): 'Little Secrets' - Passion Pit

Emotional climax/sad montage: 'Happy Ending' - Mika


That's all I've got for now. I'm curious to see which songs you guys use for your stories!

I don't really have specific songs for specific scenes, but my characters do end up having a theme song. Some of my favorites:

Something Beautiful by NeedToBreathe (A moody male protagonist)

Come on, Get Higher by Matt Nathanson (A sexy, arrogant male protagonist)

Galvanize, by The Chemical Brothers (My villain)

Stronger, by Kanye West (My heroine)

Magic, by B.o.B (The relationship between two characters)

King of Anything, by Sara Barreilles (This one just makes me smile when I'm writing from a woman's POV)

Well, I always have one or two particular bands for each of my WIPs. Right now, I'm listening to a lot of Onerepublic. I know a few songs for certain scenes:

The ending: Mercy, Onerepublic

Theme song: All We Are, One republic

The breakup song: By the Way, Theory of a Deadman

I mostly listen to albums, but I love it when I discover songs fit stories. Here are some of them for Suns and Stars, not in order.

Worlds Apart by Twenty Twenty
Walls by All Time Low
Solaris by Elliot Minor
Two Is Better Than One by Boys Like Girls feat. Taylor Swift
I Caught Fire by The Used

When I was writing the novel that is based on Irish mythology, I put Pandora on "Old Blind Dogs" radio and went at it.

That's the closest I've ever come to having a 'playlist.'

About to merge with the long-standing writing soundtrack thread. I'm going to leave the other new thread as a listening while you work thread instead of a soundtrack thread.

BrigidMary, "King of Anything" totally reminds me of how my MC initially feels towards one of the guys in the story. I love that song!

I need to make a playlist for my YA novel, but here are just a few songs that I think sort of capture the essence of it:

Little Dawn - Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
Orphans - Beck
I Believe - R.E.M.
We Are Co-Existors - Bodies of Water
You, Me and the Bourgeoisie - The Submarines
The Fear - Lily Allen
Washington Bullets - The Clash
These Days - R.E.M.

I will have to take some time to consider this. Music is always playing as I type, unless I'm outside of course, because then that would be noise hooliganism. I've always got a soundtrack. I even composed my own stuff to help set scenes. I swear to God I'm a bit manic.

Soundtracks:
LOTR (extended recordings)
Kingdom of Heaven
Halo
Assassins Creed (1 &2)
Prince of Persia
Clash of The Titans
Transformers
Underworld (all three)
Earthsea
Chronicles of Narnia

and

Loreena McKennitt

The first four mentioned make for FABULOUS battle scene music.

I've been listening to Akira Senju's scores for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood a lot while writing my novel. He writes beautiful, layered, subtle music that works well as writing music.

I also listened to the Halo soundtracks a lot, and found myself digging out James Newtown Howard's Defiance score during key scenes (and while studying for my statistics tests during my final credit hours at college).

About half the book was written during complete silence, though.

One of my planned projects has a London girl who's a big fan of dubstep (don't ask how that happened), so I'm probably going to immerse myself in that type of music to help me get inside her head if/when I choose to pursue that project.

6. Don't Stop the Music - Rhianna

Whitley, Stars and Au Revoir Simone.

Also, the soundtrack to 'How to Train Your Dragon'. That music just makes me want to get up and go on an adventure C:

I use the Dexter opening theme song whenever I write about the Bad monster in my book. It always gives me that mix of playful evilness :)

For 'epic' scenes (ie, really emotional or action-packed ones) I rely on movie soundtracks like Narnia, LOTR, Stardust, Harry Potter, and Pirates of the Caribbean. For fantasy in particular, I like a strange mix of classical and orchestral rock, like Enya, Hayley Westenra, Nightwish, Within Temptation, and Gustav Holst's The Planets. And I also have playlists for each particular story with songs that thematically match the plot and characters. For my current WIP, there's a lot of Florence + the Machine, Keane, and Imogen Heap.

You have come up with the formula for win.

Especially with Deftones (they're one of my favorite bands ever). And The Black Keys, Dave Matthews Band, Allman Brothers Band, Sick Puppies, Pearl Jam...I should stop.

Anyway, for my WIP called "The Castle Captures Me", I love the playlist I have.
